How much does a Brake Flush cost?

Proper vehicle inspections and basic maintenance like a brake flush can prevent you from having to deal with costly repairs in the future. Bring your to our location to assure your brake system is operating properly. We can check your brake pads, fluid levels, rotors, calipers, brackets and everything in your brake system.

Can I just replace brake pads and not rotors?

Yes, your rotors will usually last longer than your brake pads as long as you replace your pads before doing damage to your calipers or rotors. By not replacing your brake pads in a regular manner you can damage the other parts.

Brake Pads | Brake Rotors | Brake Calipers

The brake system is comprised of the following key components:

  • Heat Shield or dust shield helps prevent grime buildup thereby lengthening the life of your brake system.
  • Master cylinder or hydraulic cylinder converts the pressure you put on your brake pedals to power the rest of your brake system by feeding brake fluid into the brake circuit.
  • Brake pads or shoes are the parts that physically make contact with your brake rotor and apply pressure or friction to slow and stop your wheels from turning. It's exceedingly essential to keep brake pads fresh by replacing them as they experience quite a bit of stress every time they are used. Check your maintenance schedule for the suggested mileage intervals.
  • Brake Hoses transmit brake fluid from the brake line to your brake calipers. It's made of rubber and is flexible so that it can move with the suspension. These hoses need to be examined regularly for cracks and other symptoms of deterioration. Check your maintenance schedule for more data on when your hoses should be replaced.
  • Backing plate & return spring holds your braking system together so it can function correctly.
  • Rotors again called discs or drums are what your pads grip in order to stop the wheels from spinning. There are several types of brake rotors (Blank or "smooth" rotors, Cross-drilled rotors, slotted, drilled and slotted). Let find the best type of brake rotors for your
  • Parking Brake cable or adjuster is a steel cable used to trigger the parking brakes. When the lever is used or pedal depressed, the cable pulls the calipers or drums to initiate the parking brake of your.
  • Brake Calipers squeeze the brake pads up against your rotors to slow or stop your vehicle.
  • Anti-lock Braking System pump and a computer allows your vehicle to keep traction on the road continuously.

Brake pads consist of two layers: a metal backing plate and a high-friction material that includes rubber, fiber, carbon & other materials. Over time, brake pads wear down and can even start squeaking. This noise is the metal backing plate & the rotor touching, which again acts as a safety measure to let you know your brakes need repair. This can again cause damage to your rotors and, in some cases, can even start distorting them. In addition to serving as a "platform" for the friction material, the backing plate again protects the brake caliper from disproportionate heat buildup.

Brake calipers cover the rotors and contain pistons. The amount of pistons depends on the type of brake system. Brake fluid from the master cylinder forces these pistons to maneuver the brake pads against the disc. The brake caliper will uniformly distribute pressure against the brake disc. Generally, the more pistons in a caliper, the more uniformly the pressure from the pads is spread onto the brake disc.

What is involved in a Brake System Inspection? Checking Brake Parts & Brake Systems

At Larry H. Miller Used Car Supermarket Boise, we offer a multi-point inspection with each service visit that includes accurately inspecting your brakes, brake pads, rotors, operation, belts, hoses and filters, among other items, not just your brake system. Our immensely gifted mechanics will also look at the following when inspecting your brakes:

  • Rotors / Brake Drums - determining if resurfacing or replacement is required
  • Cylinders - check wheel cylinders & brake master cylinder for function
  • Brake Operation & Components - such as Brake Pad Thickness & hardware for uncontrolled wear and tear
  • Brake hoses - problems with the hoses, like cracking or clogs are remarkably common and need to be checked regularly as they can wear over time
  • Brake Fluid - Checking brake fluid levels, color and signs of obvious brake fluid leaks

Front Brake Pads & Rotor Replacement

Wear and tear on your brakes depends highly on your driving habits and the type of brake pads your has, but ordinarily front brakes wear out before rear breaks at 30,000 - 60,000 miles because they are ordinarily under much less stress.

Brake Fluid

Where does brake fluid come into the equation? The brake fluid or hydraulic fluid is responsible for moving the parts of your brake system. Fresh brake fluid is something few people think about, even though it can seriously affect braking performance. Brake fluid should be changed often. Ask your maintenance manual for facts on exact mileage intervals.For any brake related questions or concerns, reach out to our experts at Larry H. Miller Used Car Supermarket Boise. You can even schedule your appointment online.
